Local, Come & Try It, Summer Series, Training

For the third event in our 2017 Simon Peck Summer Series we'll be visiting Ipswich High School at Woolverstone. Beginners are welcome to "Come & try orienteering", learning to navigate their way around parkland, woodland, gardens & school buildings on this private estate with spectacular views of the Orwell Estuary. There will be three courses of approx. 2, 3.2 & 4.2Km as measured directly between control points on the map, but actual distances will be longer due to the "uncrossable" buildings, walls & fences. Competitive orienteers will treat the courses as a sprint-style event but beginners are welcome to walk the routes if they prefer. Electronic timing (SI) will be used. Help & advice is available & there will be a training session for club members. Entry fees: £3 for adults/groups, £1 for juniors.

The EAOA AGM will also be held at this venue at 13:30

Local, Come & Try It, Summer Series, Training

The final event in our 2017 Simon Peck Summer Series will be held in the popular Haughley Park, near Stowmarket. Beginners are welcome to "Come & try orienteering" in a rural parkland & woodland setting & will learn to do a "score event" - which means visiting as many controls as you can in the time allowed - & there will also be an additional challenge for those with more experience. Everyone will start at together 10:45 and electronic timing with SI cards will be used (newcomers will be able to borrow these). Advice & coaching will be available; full details in due course.

For SuffOC members, the 2017 AGM will be held at Blackbourne Centre, Elmswell at 12:00.
